Draft season is upon us! Jay’s rankings are released, but in addition, a few of the other writers, myself included, are going to put out our Top-200 Rankings for your enjoyment… and sometimes anger. I’m unveiling my rankings a little bit further down this page, but that’s not all, Zach and Tehol will be revealing their Top-200 Rankings as well in the coming days. This is what you’re here for right? It’s not for our sexy words that flow like poetry throughout the preseason. Of course not! You want to know who is ahead of who on one simple click. Nobody has time for anything else! And after the rankings I’ll go over some players of note!
Take me on in the Razzball Commenter Leagues for a chance at prizes! Join here!
Rookie Running Backs – I think Dalvin Cook is the safest play for the highest overall ranking among this core. Neither Cook or Fournette have very good offensive lines, but I like Cook’s pass-catching and play-making abilities more. Joe Mixon and Christian McCaffery have just as much – if not more talent, but the opportunity for touches isn’t as much of a guarantee for either of these players for me to rank them ahead of Cook.
Ezekiel Elliott – Assuming that the suspension stays the same, I ranked Ezekiel Elliott where I’d feel comfortable taking him. I am not comfortable taking him earlier than the fourth round in 10 team leagues based on him missing almost half of the fantasy football regular season. The margin for error is simply to tight for me to justify a higher pick.
A couple more notes… I believe in Kenny Golladay more than Corey Davis for this season, but not by much. I may die on this sword, but I love the red zone ability of Golladay and I don’t know how quick of a bloomer Davis will be. Watch out for Mack Hollins at 200, he could play a big role in Philadelphia this year with the departure of Matthews.
